Whether you swap your morning coffee with this tasty caffeine-free alternative, or simply add one to your evening wind-down routine – you might just start to notice the benefits of turmeric lattes in a matter of weeks 

What’s in a Turmeric Latte?

When it comes to making the perfect turmeric latte, there are a few key ingredients you’ll need to get your hands on.  

Turmeric Tea

Turmeric Root

It goes without saying that you’ll need some turmeric to make a turmeric latte! Although it’s possible to make a tasty turmeric latte with standard ground turmeric, we would always recommend using fresh turmeric root or a turmeric shot for the many added health benefits.

Honey 

Sweeten your turmeric milk with a drizzle of delicious honey. Not only is it a natural sweetener, but it also contains more nutrients than refined sugar. High-quality honey contains antioxidants, which may improve cholesterol and lower blood pressure. 

Raw Honey

If you’re looking to make a vegan turmeric latte, then you can swap the honey for agave nectarcoconut nectar or maple syrup for a boost of sweetness. 

Cinnamon and Ginger 

Boasting a number of health benefits, cinnamon and ginger add a warming, spicy flavour to turmeric lattes.  

Thought to be able to reduce blood sugar levels and provide a large dose of antioxidants, cinnamon and ginger are two spices that may enhance your overall health, whilst also taking the taste of your turmeric latte to the next level!  

Milk

No latte is complete without milk! We opt for almond milk in our turmeric latteas the subtle nutty flavour really complements the blend of warming spices. However, any milk will work well, so choose your favourite or have an experiment! 

Turmeric Latte Health Benefits 

So now you know what goes into them, you might be wondering how turmeric lattes are good for you.  

Turmeric Latte

Filled with antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals, such as niacin, magnesium and zinc from the honey, calcium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D from the fortified almond milk and antioxidants from the cinnamon, turmeric and ginger - turmeric lattes can be incredibly nutritious!
